Oh, look,  I’m wearing a Bardot top again, what a surprise! You just never know what I’m going to come up with next, do you?

I wish I could say this off-the-shoulder obsession will be ending sometime soon, but given that I currently have three more of the things in my ASOS basket, just waiting for me to pull the trigger, I guess that would be like promising to stop wearing polka dots. It’s just not going to happen, is it? I would happily wear these tops all summer (and I probably will, let’s not kid ourselves here…): I love the fact that they’re super-simple, which means they can pass as “casual”, but they add a giant dose of old-fashioned glamour to whatever you wear them with.

It doesn’t really get better than that, does it?

    I love the skirt and how you paired it with those shoes. I wore polka dots on polka dots this weekend too, the post will be on the blog sometime in the afternoon, mine were the same or very similar size but I really like how your outfit looks with the different sized polka dots. Inspiring :)

      Aww, your outfits are always lovely: I don’t think you’d need my help :)

    Hats off to you for finding a strapless bra good enough to wear regularly, instead of for a few hours with a strapless party dress like most of us do!

    Lovely outfit, particularly fond of the pops of pink.

    I gave in and ordered those sunglasses, after months of coveting! I need to get my prescription put in them.

    I love the bag :)

      Oh, you won’t regret it! I looked back on my posts from last year a few months ago and realised I was wearing them in every single photo – I think the cost-per-wear must be down to zero by now!

    Hello Amber! I’ve recently discovered your blog – oddly by googling something about sizing. For the past few days, I’ve been reading your blog and I absolutely love the way you write, your shoes and your hair is absolutely adorable!
    I’m going to keep on reading your blog although I’m filled with envy at times due to the fact that some of the clothes that look awesome on you would, sadly, look bad on me as I have more of an hourglass figure (read: really wide hips) and I can’t wear anything like pencil skirts, or pretty much anything that’s remotely tight around the hips. However, it’s nice to see/read a woman who is my age and seems to share a lot of opinions and tastes with me. Also, I’m entirely jealous of your blue/red/white Kate Spade bag. At least I already know what I want from Santa this year ;-)

      Oh, that’s lovely to hear – I’m glad you’re enjoying it! And that bag is well worth waiting for – there’s very little a red, white and blue bag doesn’t go with ;)
